Ravens training camp will be a week longer this summer. They’ll also be playing five preseason games instead of the usual four. That’s a result of the NFL announcing Tuesday that the Ravens will be playing the Chicago Bears in the 2018 Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, on Thursday, Aug. 2, at...

 

I'm getting prepared now. I will not get excited about anybody or any unit. 

You know how it goes. Before training camp they look decent on paper. Then the key pieces start to drop, units get decimated and we're....

"For 17 years, we could point to No. 52 and tell the other players: 'Follow his lead. Practice like Ray practices. Prepare like Ray prepares. Be a great teammate like him,'" Ravens general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a release from the team. "It was our privilege to have him as a Raven. We are all better for having him here. His play on gamedays speaks for itself.

"Even in that small group who have the honor of being a Hall of Famer, Ray stands out. When you talk about the great players of all time, no matter position, he is among the greatest of the great."

Like a pitch count, I'm sure there's an optimum number of reps for an NFL player before he wears down during the season.

I'm sure it varies between aging vets, rookies and players in their prime.

I hope the Ravens know this.

...and with all the injuries they've had the last few years, I would bet that the extra week of camp will be easy on the vets too.
